Dubai Too Hot for You? Stay Overnight on Its Snowy Slopes

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Visitors to Dubai have a new way to keep cool during the scorching Mideast summer.

The company behind the city's indoor ski slope plans to let guests stay overnight in tents on the man-made snow on Fridays starting from July 29.

For 750 dirhams ($204) a person, campers will get after-hours access to the slopes and refreshments including hot chocolate before bedding down in tents and sleeping bags to keep out the artificial chill. Breakfast is in an adjacent Alpine-themed cafe.

The man-made Ski Dubai attraction opened in 2005 in the Mall of the Emirates shopping complex.

Its operator says overnight visitors can expect temperatures of -4 degrees Celsius (25 F). Weather outside Monday was a fairly typical 43 C (109 F).
